    I have a mid-2009 15" 2.66Ghz base model MacBook Pro running 10.5.8 and my super-drive is not working. When ever I try to put in a disk it doesn't feed into the machine. I don't understand why this happened, but when i turned my computer on today to try to watch a movie it didn't take the disk. I then thought, "why not do a system restore?" then i realized that it couldn't take the disk in... Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The super-drive has been working fine up untill today.

    The problem is hardware, not software. Sounds like the drive has failed or its power cable has been disconnected. Take it in to the shop.

    *sigh* That's what I thought... I'll still hold out for another thing to try. i just recently got my display replaced and i don't want to have to go to the store 6 days after it was replaced. (And yes my drive has worked in those 6 days.)

    Would I void my warranty if I were to open up my computers and make sure all of the wires are in all the way?
